this big this fast? bill kristol is influential with republicans in washington. i'm stunned with what i'm hearing? >> i almost fell out of my chair when boehner said revenues. the idea of increasing revenues. that's a central argument that we have been having over the last four years, and the very expensive i told you so i guess. if we're going to get to this problem, we have to deal with revenues, we can't just do it all on the spending side. >> jonathan capehart, there is bill kristol teaching republicans how to talk about this. but it does involve a word for word refutation of what they said in the past, that higher rates will kill the economy. there is bill kristol pointing out how we've done perfectly fine under higher rates in the past. >> what he's trying to get through to republicans, particularly the new class that came in in 2010, okay, you campaigned on all of these promises, but now it's time to govern and things have come to a standstill in washington over the last two years, and now with the fiscal cliff or fiscal curve coming, and the president being re-elected with more
another fight in washington. >> there are really two issues there. >> a revenue side, yes. >> where is that revenue going to come from? >> increasing tax rates is going to harm economic growth. >> warren buffett was out this morning talking about tacking the wealthy. >> time to make the tax rates more progressive. >> that's just silly. >> grover norquist, he wanted ground government in the bathtub. i hope he slips in there with it. >> medicaid, social security. >> this is not part of the conversation. we're not going to raid social security. just another fight in washington. >> there's going to be blood and hair and eyeballs all over the floor. >> i'm more positive than most. >> if not, we go off the supposed cliff. >> the fiscal cliff or slope. the bump of various height. >>> thelma and louise might need to make room in the car for the president of the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials. "the washington post" reports that one told him after the meeting, quote, would the white house go off the c
smoking. as a nation's near universal health care system is being defined in washington there is a campaign right now to make sure people around the country know about it, understand it and become part of it. if this campaign succeeds, it could make the affordable care act bigger and better than we thought. you have probably heard that the law will cover 30 million people. what you probably don't know is what is behind that guesstimate. roughly 49 people in the united states currently don't have health insurance. the congressional budget office estimates that 30 million of them will gain coverage under the affordable care act. that leaves 19 million uninsured. about 5 million of that 19 million are illegal immigrants not eligible for the law of subsidies. they project another 2 million live in states that will opt out of the medicaid expansion. that leaves 12 million people. the cbo estimates at least 6 million of them are actually going to be eligible for medicaid. they just won't sign up and won't know about it. even more will be eligible for private insurance. the cbo
think government shouldn't be involved with, for example, we don't think politicians in washington should be controlling health care choices. women are perfectly capable of making themselves. now, colorado, for eight years we had a president who shared these beliefs. his name was bill clinton. and his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and at the time, you may be surprised to learn that the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would kill jobs. kill the economy. turns out their math back then was just as bad as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs. incomes were up. poverty was down. our deficit had become a surplus. so colorado, we know our ideas work because they've been tested. they've been tried. and we also know that the other folks' ideas don't work because they've been tested. after bill clinton left office, for most of the last decade, we tr

around for the the next hour. we have very, very big news tonight in washington. you might remember a period of time when the republican party was afraid of a guy named grover. it's not that time anymore. >> the gop post election fallout continues on a couple fronts. >>. >> the fiscal cliff is getting shorter and shorter. >> voters agreed with me on this issue. >> more than congressional republicans. >> we don't understand. >> americans didn't vote for dysfunction. >> the voters agreed with me on this issue. >> they voted for government that works. >> we don't understand why raising tax rates is the solution. >> can party leaders get a deal? >> impossible. >> all this talk about taxing the rich is nonsense. >> grover norquist. >> you speak of grover norquist. >> he's an entertaining warrior. >> pledge mentality is really on the run right now. >> speaker boehner clearly wants a deal. >> he can't have one arm tied behind his back. >> the top 1%, only 42% of the wealth. >> 48.5 million people lived below the poverty level. >> we should ask the wealthy to start paying their fair share.
't help me, don't help me. >> mr. romney goes to washington. >> mitt romney makes his way to the white house. >> the political power lunch of 2012. >> it's not exactly the way he wanted to get there. >> president obama and mitt romney meeting for the first time, privately. >> when we say private, we mean private. >> no cameras. >> no cameras allowed. >> no staff. >> to move forward and have a lunch. it's weird. >> there's really no agenda. >> it's weird! >> it's really to bury the hatchet. >> mitt romney comes to washington. guess whose coming to lunch? >> rip flamba. >> we are now 33 days away from the fiscal curb, and democrats are telling republicans that it's their move. >> we are not going to negotiate with us. we have made a proposal through the president of the united states. that proposal said we should revert back to the same tax plan that we had when clinton was president. you can't get from here to there unless you raise the upper rates. and that's what the president suggested, it's up to them to come forward with something else. >> the day after boehner loyalist tom cole, r
in a custody battle over her four-year-old son. "the washington post" is now reporting according to advisers close to petraeus, petraeus only resigned after national intelligence director james clapper told him to do so. joining me now, spencer ackerman, senior writer for "wired" who writes for their national security blog, the danger room, and nbc's richard wolffe. richard, i don't know, i don't know much about waging war. i do know a little bit about living life. and these generals are writing absolutely crazy letters which i don't have time to read to a judge in a custody battle. >> right. >> a woman who has lost custody of her son, and in this country it is not easy for women to lose custody of children in these situations, the judge has decided she is a liar, she changed the kid's name without telling the father, took the kid out of state without telling the father, all sorts of crazy stuff documented in the case, and you have these two generals writing to the judge as if they know something about it, telling him that oh, no, no, she should get more custody of the child. these letters t
is happening in washington right now. you've probably heard of the fiscal cliff or as lawrence likes to call it, the fiscal curve or as my friend calls t the austerity bomb. whatever you would like to call it, it does not look like it's going to happen. it doesn't just look like we're going to avoid a crisis. at this moment today, and this can change, it looks like we're going to avoid an almost-crisis too. they might wrap it up and go home for christmas. almost everyone i have talked to has been weirdly confident and upbeat about where this is going. this shouldn't be an amazing thing for me to tell you. i shouldn't be coming to you saying, look, congress might not blow up the economy for no good reason. or if i do have to say it, i shouldn't sound excited about it. that should be a given. but in recent years, it has not been a given. and the reason it hasn't been is in some ways traceable to this guy. you know that guy. that is grover norquist. if you go by his name or his picture, he may not seem imposing. but in the republican party, he's a guy that breaks your knees if you vote for higher
at the top in this country, they don't need a champion in washington. they will have a seat at the table. they will have access and influence. we understand that but the people who need a champion are the letters whose i read every night. those un peopyoung people and s pa farm towns and up here kids dreaming of becoming scientists maybe even a president they need a champion in washington. >> the president saying he is an agent for change. governor romney using his talents as a saililsalesman to up the policies that we have been cleaning up after after these last four years. my opponent can talk about change but i know what change looks like because i fought for it. because i have the scars to prove it. >> michael bloomberg did not endorse a presidential candidate in 2008. today he endorsed president in and writes the devastation that hurricane sandy brought the stakes of tuesday's election to sharp relief. i want our president to play scientific evidence above electoral politics. mitt romney will campaign and during the 2008 campaign senator john mccain made a late play for pennsylvania
the theory was that the president would use hurricane sandy and its effects possibly on washington, d.c. as an excuse for delaying the jobs report until after the election. and then of course as of yesterday when they knew it was coming out, they were absolutely convinced that they would cook the books. and so we saw an up tick o of .1%. >> it's a reverse psychology ploy that the obama folks are trying but it won't work. none of what the conspiracy theoryists thought would happen in fact happened and there was an uptick in the percentage and a decent number of new jobs. and so it really allows both campaigns to continue with their main economic narratives. the obama narrative that things are getting better, let's stay the course and the romney narrative that things aren't getting better fast enough. >> mitt romney brought up the booming debt ceiling situation. there's going to have to be another increase relatively soon. let's listen to what he said about it today. >> you know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in congress. i mean, he
. the "washington post" writes today, ann would come to me and said eric, what are we going to do about this? said eric fehrnstrom. another romney adviser said the group think today is if we were to go back and change one thing, we would spend more money and more strongly defend mitt, push back on the rich guy, the tax rate issue, the bain capital issue. of course, pushing back against the image of mitt romney is a rich guy who paid an extraordinarily low income tax rate and was a bain capital profiteer and based on layoffs and outsourcing would be pushing back against the truth. bill o'reilly said the win went to the smartest team. >> if mitt romney had a guy as smart as david axelrod, the governor would be celebrating tonight. >> as of this hour, president obama has won 303 electoral college votes, and mitt romney has won 206. the only state has yet to call is florida. where president obama leads. he has won the popular vote. the 113th congress will be composed of a democratic majority in the senate with 53 democrats, a two seat increase, as well as 45 republicans and two independents. at least
of the washington and the assistant manager editor of "time" magazines. the republicans have been saying we might able to do something with deductions but deductions only, no rate changes. it seems like tim geithner and the president are really double teaming that issue very strongly. >> i think they've drawn a line in the sand. can you see that from the statements today. this was arguably the biggest issue of the campaign. as the president said, most people do agree the rich should pay a higher percentage of taxes. i think making deductions work is going to be politically difficult. you have to get into things like the mortgage interest deductions. i think raising taxes on the rich is going to be something the president will hold the line on. >> the president again today called on the house of representatives to just pass the bill that the senate has passed already, with those rates and john boehner responded. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this and i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the mi
editor of the grio and ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post." joy, i want to go to you first in terms of the akin and mourdock races, these guys can't help but stepping in it and now it seems like the chickens are coming home to roost. >> thanks to crazy, democrats are going to hold on to the seat. thank you, crazy. i think it's good that these guys ran in the sense that it has ripped the veil off of something that particularly younger women, a lot of democrats either didn't know or didn't want to think about, which is that you have a hard core religious element within the republican party that does believe that women should not be making basic choices about their health care and that women have ruined the workforce for being in it. >> and women being dragged around by their hair and so forth? >> indeed. i'm predicting that mccaskill will do better than that margin. a lot of people say they are going to vote for republican but i have a pretty good feeling she is going to do well. >> ryan, it's amazing how it's turned the departure of senior leadership, the republ
hungry. he's a washington guy, a lobbiest and wants to find a way out. >> thank you very much for joining me. >> coming up, warren buffett exposes the dirty little money secret of fellow rich guys, rush limbaugh and bill o'reilly and big news. chris christie is running and later, think about this. who is more christ like? the brave defender of christmas or the actor writer director, is bill o'reilly or ricky gervais more christlike? tweet us your answer and it will be in tonight's rewrite. let's see if we can get one past the defense. hut! go! here it comes! right on the numbers! boom! get it! spin! oh, nice hands! chest bump. ugh! good job, man. nice! okay, halftime. now, this is my favorite play. oh! i'm wide open. oh, fumble. fumble. don't want to fumble any of these. [ male announcer ] share what you love, with who you love. kellogg's frosted flakes. it's up... and it's good! good?! they're grrreat! with his wife, danielle, almost every weekend. derrell hasn't been able to visit his mom back east in a long time.

work. >> and a "washington post" poll showing 60% of americans support what is now in fact the tom cole barack obama position. raising incomes on over $250,000 in income. when you look at these polls the republicans are reading, when you look at the totality the way this is coming in, the point "the wall street journal" editorial board and tom cole was trying to drive in today, the rates are going up. now, what are our options? and he's saying our best omptio is actually what the president has laid out. >> that's right and so, john boehner has asked himself, how do we get to that place and i think you were right earlier, that he's allowing cole to go out there and everyone knows cole is a good friend. everyone knows if they come to some type of deal, it's going to require some republicans and a ton of democrats, but it's going to require a significant number of of republicans. not four or five. it may be as many as 50 to 100 because the democrats are going to insist we're not going to do this largely alone like they did the bailout in 2008, so this is kind of paving the way for that to
